1. It can be done, the code will get a little squirrelly. I prefer to sort
the differences between the browsers on the server (XSSI, PHP, ASP, ect),
but you could do it all in JavaScript in the browser.

2. Umm, yea - appears to require a re-authoring of how the page is put
together. Depending on how its done it might require extra images to be
downloaded. It can be made to work - it will take time.

3. http://developer.webtv.net/authoring/javascript/

I haven't tried targeting webTV's jellyscript, but it looks like you could
get it to work as well.
